Stereotactic Systems, Frame-Guided, Radiosurgical, Linear Accelerator

Definition : Radiosurgical frame-guided stereotactic computer-aided surgical systems designed to aid in the performance of surgical procedures from the exterior of the body using a single high dose of ionizing radiation provided by linear accelerators (i.e., linac). These systems typically combine medical imaging, a rigid frame (e.g., a headframe) attached to the patient body for guidance, dedicated computer software, and a dedicated linear accelerator with a movable gantry and a single or multileaf collimator. Standard linacs may also be adapted for limited radiosurgery applications. Frame-guided radiosurgical linac stereotactic systems are mainly intended for use in neurosurgery (e.g., for brain, neck, and spinal tumors) and less frequently for other intracranial malformations.
